I am in the process of moving jobs, where I have a conditional offer subject to background checks, where one of the main reasons why I have decided to leave is from not being valued at work.
Without getting too much into the details, there is favouritism prevailing where a certain individual that I do not get along with, is manipulative and using his networking skills to damage my reputation and further his career within the org.
He is going around talking badly about me behind my back to influential people, which is resulting in him being invited to high profile events, whilst I am not. I feel his end goal is to try to get me to leave, which he has achieved. Ironically, my opportunity is with a much more high profile org.
I have escalated this issue several times to Senior management over the past 6 months, but there approach has been to tell me to deal with it directly with him. This particular individual in Senior management also seems to be validating his behaviour by never stepping in but taking his opinions more seriously than mine.
The original plans was to hand in my notice once my offer is unconditional, but I am increasingly becoming frustrated and demotivated at work where I can't stand this anymore since very little of what I say carries any weight anyway.
I appreciate many of you will tell me to wait it out, but is it really worth doing so?
